We truly enjoyed our stay at the Haile Resort in your presidential suite. My Family and I always receive presidential treatment from all staff with every visit. Your management, guests services, restaurant services, room services and spa service and over all hospitality is always loving, caring and professional. The outdoor amenities such as the swimming pool, table pool, playground, tennis, table tennis, and gym are a pleasure and very enjoyable. Also, the different stores and boutiques have a lot of variety of beautiful items. We got a massage prior to this trip and it was very relaxing and the staff were all professional. We are grateful and thankful to be treated like family and we consider the Haile Resort as our second home. Thank you for always providing VIP service. Peace and blessings to all the staff…..

Stayed for 2 nights on leisure. Booked lake view room. The rooms is equipped however needs a bit maintenance to keep the condition such as wall to be painted, bathroom furniture… etc. the water pressure in the shower is very low. The breakfast and dinner options at the main restaurant are pretty good and the quality is also very great. The one in the pool is missing a bit of healthy option. Only pizza and sandwiches. The chef is seen from breakfast to dinner and does table checks. Well done! The staff is super friendly, attentive and ready to make you feel at home. From the security guard, to the housekeeping team and F&B service. The only disappointment was at the check out time. I forgot my credit card. Yes was my mistake and I did not realize until I had to pay the bill. I looked for different options to solve the problem but I did not have any kind of help from the FOM in charge at the reception. He was just blunt and asking me what I am going to do???? Instead of him maybe trying to provide me some alternatives? It made me feel like if I was lying or not having the funds to pay… he was just standing in front of me with extremely unfriendly attitude and “0” costumer friendly service… luckily one of my colleagues transferred the funds and I settled the bill directly with Nathaniel at the front desk. Nathaniel and the other lady were very apologetic with the situation and tried to comfort me once the issue was solved, however, the damage was already done by the attitude of the manager. It just made me leave with extremely bitter feeling thinking twice if I will come back when I need a break from the city. Just not good after having a nice two days. Things happens (like I forgot my card) but there are always solutions and in hospitality industry the staff should be there to assist the guests, especially someone sitting in the management level… If the line TM’s can be friendly, attentive and willing to assist… the management should lead by example and do the same… Just disapointing…

When we arrived at the resort, the weather was so fresh that we really liked it. When we checked in to our family room, the room was organized and clean. But we thought the family room would be big enough but it was so tight.The breakfast buffet had many option's and was so nice, lunch was not so bad and dinner was so amazing specially the chicken nugget. The kids playground was amazing.And at morning we had a boat ride and we saw many hippos .But the thing that they need to make better is make the rooms more bigger.

When we arrived, the room was not ready despite it being after check in time. But Cherinet and her staff, but especially Cherinet, did an absolutely exceptional job of making our wait enjoyable, providing us with juices, original coffee, water and cookies until the room was ready. And when it was, they gave us a better one, stocked with a bottle of wine and fruit! The staff are truly engaged in the customer experience. And i comes from their hearts, nothing phony or jaded here. It has been, and always will be my go-to lakeside resort watching going to watch the hippos and amazing bird life.
